Abstract: Modern Japanese women in Japan have equal rights but are expected to be subservient to their male counterparts as a matter of culture. This thesis tackles the evolution and progression of Japanese women's rights through the 19th and 20th centuries. While the history of gender biases and the resulting restriction of rights prior to the 19th century are important to address, this paper begins with the Meiji Era when women's roles first settled into law. The Meiji ideals were carried from the gender ideology that had continually evolved through Japanese society.
